Li Na visits Yushu quake orphans,donating another ¥400000,learning Tibetan dance

We arrived at Yushu this morning.The sky was really blue and the sun was kinda violentI previously thought I would have plateau sickness,surprisingly,we were all excited like a "lively dragon or an active tiger" without any problemWe first visited a primary school and had fun with some kids.They were a bit shy first but soon became active when I started to teach them tennis and then they all wanted to teach me traditional Tibetan dance!!!Look at my beautiful Tibetan costume!!!!

——Li Na

Update:Li Na said she was really shocked and moved by the victims' strong willness and their love for life,she said she would fight harder in this year's China Open and would donate all her China Open prize money to Yushu Quake.
Thank you NaNa

Nice of Li Na to do that.

I am warming up to her.

Doesn't China put tight restrcition on travel to tibetan areas?
Did she have to ask permission from the Chinese goverment?
Hoe they are not using her as PR

Anyhow, Na Maybe her good deeds are blessing her on the tennis career.

Good for her, and I hope she does great in the China Open in Beijing.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

There is so much to like about Na.

I really respect the players that are charitable and willing to help members of their home country in times of tragedy.

Na Keep up the fantastic work, both on and off the court. Tennis needs more players like you.

I want her to win the China Open, to give all the money to the orphans...

Hopefully Peer won´t spoil the charity program again

So in China, when someone says 400000, it automatically means you are talking money, nothing else?
You could have put 400000 RMB in the title.

People donate lots of stuff beside money.
Bag of rice, ride paddy, medicine, etc...

Are you telling me in china, if you say a number without a unit, it automatically means currency?
